I’ve been asked on more than one occasion about Mosby Camp Road near Stanley. Some people say the name was given to the road because Mosby camped nearby. However, in all of the books written about the Rangers, not one indicates even the remote chance that Mosby’s Rangers (as a collective group) was ever in Page County. While it is true that there were several men from Page in Co. C of the 43rd Bttn. Va. Cav. (Mosby’s Rangers) and, because of this, it might seem possible that there may have been a small contingent of men from that company in the area, without any documentation whatsoever, even this is no more than speculation.
